As one of North America's longest-standing automotive manufacturers, Thomas Built Buses has been producing high-quality vehicles since 1916. Now, thanks to its commitment to design and innovation, more than one-third of all school buses in America are Thomas Built Buses. Thomas Built Buses has become one of America's primary manufacturers of buses through constant innovation and a commitment to high design standards. With these qualities in mind, the company set out to create a new manufacturing facility for its latest C2 product line, as well as completely refresh the 110-year-old facility that was currently producing its popular D-type buses. HP recommended a phased implementation of IT infrastructure and applications to minimize interruptions during the transformation project.
